Jerusalem Post, The


Jerusalem Post, The

▪ Israeli newspaper
      Israeli (Israel) English-language daily newspaper established in 1932 as the Palestine Post. It adopted its current name in 1950 and is the largest English-language daily in the country. A morning paper appearing daily except Saturday, The Post has traditionally stressed foreign news, giving particular attention to Arab-Israeli relations. In the early 21st century, its daily circulation amounted to roughly 11,000 in Israel and 26,000 in the United States. A weekly French-language edition reached 3,000 readers in France. The newspaper's popular weekend edition is the basis for an international edition called The Jerusalem Post Weekly.

      Independent in its editorial policies yet widely seen in Israel as politically right-of-centre, The Jerusalem Post has combined spare writing with economical headlines and careful editing to build a reputation for informative and thorough coverage. The paper was sold in 2004 when two firms each purchased a 50 percent share in The Jerusalem Post from beleaguered Hollinger International, which had recently sold the Telegraph of London. The new owners were CanWest Global Communications, a Canadian newspaper publisher, and Mirkaei Tikshoret, a diversified Israeli media firm controlled by investor Eli Azur.
